The Wright Soap may seem like any other soap company at first glance, but their combination of essential oils and natural flavors makes them stand apart from other companies. I have known the creator, Mallory Wright, for many years, and was very excited to have the opportunity to try out her new soaps. I especially loved that she was using essential oils to make them, as I have recently found myself on the holistic hunt for everything related to essential oils. I got to try two of her amazing soaps, the Orange & Lemon soap, and the Buttermilk Honeycomb soap.
Growing up, I had a lot of skin sensitivities. Because of this, I was always very cautious about trying new soaps. I was so excited to hear that my good friend was using natural ingredients, and I can honestly say that this soap has done nothing but good things for my skin. Each soap smells absolutely amazing, and the fact that I can use them without worrying about my chemical and skin sensitivities is a huge bonus. For all my chronic illness followers, this is a soap you must try!
The Orange and Lemon soap has quickly become my go-to soap. I have recently begun cooking, and a vast majority of my cooking is done with egg, so this soap has gotten a fair amount of use from me in the kitchen. Made with fresh ingredients, including lye water, extra virgin olive oil, lemon essential oils, orange essential oils, lime and orange zest, and coconut oils, along with a recipe from thethingswellmake.com, it is an incredible soap. Wright uses Young Living essential oils, natural products, and a cold-processing method to create this great soap. It is also vegan, cruelty-free, and palm oil free.
Although I do love the Orange and Lemon soap, the Buttermilk Honeycomb soap is my absolute favorite! Personally, I find the texture of the honeycomb top (created using bubble-wrap and a silicon mold) to be soothing. This recipe found in Pure Soapmaking by Anne-Marie Faiola is made with all-natural ingredients, such as lye water, olive oil pomace, avocado oil, canola oil, sunflower oil, coconut oil, honey, buttermilk, karma essential oil, and orange essential oil. This soap is palm oil free as well.
These soaps are a must-have for any chronic illness sufferer, especially if you have sensitive skin or chemical sensitivity. The blend of natural products and essential oils nourish the skin and will leave you wondering why you ever bought any other soap brand.
